Sepang extends Formula 1 deal
The Sepang circuit will continue to host the Malaysian GP after its organisers signed a new deal to remain on the Formula 1 calendar until 2018.
The circuit had joined the Formula 1 in 1999 and has remained a part of the tournament ever since. This year’s race was the last of a deal that had been signed way back in 2007. Negotiations between the two sides took a little bit longer, but finally an agreement was reached and confirmed after Sebastian Vettel won the race.
Organizers confirmed that the track had finalised a fresh deal to hold the Malaysian GP for at least three more seasons, even though details of the deal were not made public.
As expected, Petronas has also extended its title sponsorship of the event for the duration of the new contract.
